The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.


According to the versions of the libXi packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- Multiple integer overflows in libXi before 1.7.7 allow remote X servers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds memory access or infinite loop) via vectors involving length fields.(CVE-2016-7945)

- libXi before 1.7.7 allows remote X servers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) via vectors involving length fields.(CVE-2016-7946)

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the EulerOS security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected libXi packages.
